6-7-11: From Baltimore to Joplin with Love
Last month we interviewed artist Rebecca Nagle, who helped found a multi-neighborhood community group called No Boundaries. Turns out Rebecca is from Joplin, Missouri, where a tornado on May 22 killed 141 people.
Rebecca is hosting a benefit Friday night to raise money for the Joplin school system, many of whose schools were damaged.
Sheilah talks to Rebecca about the Joplin she knew as a child.
Here’s the information about the benefit:
